Greetings - this is my take on the car antenna coop door.   I used a NEMA rated electrical box from Amazon (<$20) along with some CN101 timers (~$10 each) and some cheap terminal strips from Amazon (~$12).   Some wire, pulleys and a few other items and here we are!   I added the light so I can get 14 hours of light on the hens during the winter and just in case I want to look in at night.


I created a schematic of the controls that shows how the wiring works.


Fun project - now to get the birds in there!
